Tonneau cover question
Ok, I have been thinking about getting a tonneau cover for my White '03 Silverado Ext. Cab Long Bed. Here is the problem. I have a compressed natural gas (CNG) tank in the bed right behind the cab with a cover on it that is raised about 2 - 3 inches above the sides of the bed. Is there a tonneau cover available that will fit over this tank cover? I have seen CNG Silverados with tonneau covers before, but the top to the tank cover has been cut off to make the tonneau cover fit. Here is a picture to show what the tank cover looks like. Thanks.

I don't know of any tonneau that will cover the tank, but Extang makes a cover for trucks with a toolbox. It butts up against the toolbox. Maybe you can make it work with your tank.:cool:

Extang will be a soft cover. Undercover has one called the BoxBuddy and Retrax will custom make one for you. If those don't work for you, consider a cap instead of a cover.

If your getting a cover just ditch the CNG cover. You can hard or soft..even the roll up ones. All our trucks that are CNG where I work have hard covers and the tanks bare.
